Make your own fundraising video for free with just a laptop using Lumen5

Fundraising videos work. But it shouldn't cost more to make a video, than the amount you are fundraising.

Use the free Lumen5 app to create compelling videos on your laptop using professionally made, royalty-free video clips and soundtracks.

Neighborhoods Inc of Battlecreek (NIBC) needed to raise $15,000 to support affordable housing but couldn't afford a video producer. NIBC had never created a video before. This is how they created their own fundraising video in hours with the help of a free online DemLabs video training course.

How to create a fundraising video

This fundraising appeal has a simple narrative:
- A framing shot of Battlecreek that local residents recognize
- Who is Neighborhoods Inc and its mission
- How the funds raised will be used
- A call to action and how viewers can make a donation

Aiden Baum at NIBC created this fundraising video with the free Lumen5 app on her Dell Latitude 7410. This is the first fundraising video she created!
- She picked video clips from the Lumen5 catalog that matched the fundraising appeal
- The clips transition automatically from one to the next so the video flows smoothly
- She then added captions to each clip through the app.
- Next she picked an inspiring soundtrack from the hundreds of royalty-free tracks included in Lumen5 offers
- She then published the video which outputs a MP4 file which was shared on social media and uploaded to YouTube
